If NETFX_CORE is for Windows 8, what is it for Windows Phone 8?

advertisements

I understand using the NETFX_CORE directive, like this:

#if NETFX_CORE
    // Windows 8
#else
    // Windows Phone 8
#endif

But is there a directive specific to Windows Phone 8?


Yes, the Windows Phone directive is:

#if WINDOWS_PHONE

This is documented here, but I'm surprised that it isn't mentioned here. I also tested this in some code, and it works.
